Designed with the food entrepreneur and restaurateur in mind…

The Hood is an all-inclusive hub that provides comprehensive flex space for artisans at every level and any specialty. From start-up concepts to professional chefs, The Hood Kitchen provides turn-key solutions for creating, educating, training, showcasing and entertaining. Developed by Orange County chefs who brought a space to life that was exactly what they were looking for but couldn’t find during their tenure in the kitchen.

“Our goal is to serve our clients to the best of our ability, which means providing them with access to the resources they desire to cultivate their brands at every stage. Our clients spoke, and we listened. We look forward to unveiling the new multi-purpose event space in Spring 2018!” – Shelby Coffman and Christie Frazier, Founders, The Hood | Kitchen. Market.

The Hood Kitchen Space is a 10,000 square ft commercial kitchen facility focused on providing clean, health department certified space for chefs, restaurants, bakers, food artisans, consultants and culinary teachers to flourish, at any stage in their business.  Available hourly, weekly or monthly, we provide a low risk alternative for food preparation and R&D.  At THKS, we seek people and businesses with great products, efficient processes, and flexible mindset. Each of our 6 commercial kitchens come standard with a 6 burner Royal range, double deck convection oven, grill, stock pot burner, a prep sink and 2 prep tables.
